What Is Animal Rehabilitation?

Animal Rehabilitation is a relatively new to veterinary medicine.  Therapy can be used for many types of disease processes as well as weight loss or general fitness and conditioning.

Rehabilitation can help increase speed of recovery from orthopedic surgeries such as CCL tear or FHO.

At Commerce Village Veterinary Hospital, we can develop programs to help keep canine athletes in tip top shape or help the "couch potato pup" lose a few extra pounds.

When designing a plan for pet physical therapy, our goal is to reduce pain and inflammation, while improving function and movement of your pet.

While the cost of therapy may seem daunting, it may reduce the need for other pain management modalities, saving the pet parents money in the long run.

We are also flexible with scheduling so those who worry about finding time for appointments can still be accommodated.


Who Is Animal Rehabilitation For?

Rehabilitation can be used in so many ways including some of the following:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Conditioning for athletes including hunting dogs
  • Weight Loss
  • Neurologic Diseases
  • Following orthopedic surgeries
  • Young dogs and puppies who want to stay fit and learn fun new tricks

What Does Animal Rehabilitation Include?

We use a multimodal approach for each patient.  It may include: 

  • Active and passive exercises
  • Massage
  • Stretching
  • Laser therapy
  • Heat and cryotherapy.

Why Might My Pet Need Animal Rehabilitation?

The goal of therapy is to use a multimodal approach to return or maintain normal function.

When & Where Is Animal Rehabilitation Scheduled?

Appointments are generally scheduled 1-2 times per week.  In addition, a daily home exercise program is tailored for each patient.
